You've Got Mail

Wednesday, 17 August 2011

Today I received two lovely bits of mail. Over the time I've been blogging, I have been lucky enough to win a number of giveaways and each time I receive the parcel, I'm always overwhelmed with sheer excitedness and am always so grateful that I have been given the opportunity.

In June I won Becca's amazing Cherry Vimto and Missguided giveaway. When my dad opened the door to the postman, he just gave me this look to say "What have you bought now?!" When I opened the box, we were both shocked at how generous they were.

The box the hamper came in was huge! Look at the size of the box in comparison to my Macbook!

The lovely hamper with the Cherry Vimto. I've recently become obsessed with adorning my room with wicker baskets to store miscellaneous bits and pieces, so this will look perfect in my room and I'm going to put my hair styling tools in it :)

Wow-oh-wow, so generous! After taking this photo, my dad didn't hesitate to steal all 3 cans of cherry Vimto as he left for work and I have managed to munch through a packet of the Vimto Chewy Sweets and a few glasses of Cherry Vimto Cordial. Nom :)

The gorgeous cherry red lace dress from Missguided. I am going to a wedding at the end of September, so this will be perfect for the occasion.

At the beginning of August, I won the lovely Christine's Sigma F80 giveaway. I already have a Sigma F80, but since coming home from uni my mum has decided to pinch it, so this came at the perfect time! The package was shipped on Aug 9, so I was impressed at how quickly the brush came all the way from America!

How cool is the Sigma logo? It's like a rainbow holograph!

Have you won anything recently?

Thank you for reading and a massive thank you to Becca and Christine for allowing me to win their giveaways! :D Make sure to check out Becca and Christine's amazing blogs! xoxo, Joy

P.S. Don't you hate when your camera runs out of battery just as you're about to use it?! I had to use my dad's DSLR for these pictures and they came out with a yellowish tinge, so I used Carrie's vintage Photoshop action again to cover it up.


  1. Wow, I love getting goodies in the mail!

  2. oooh I didn't even know that they made cherry vimto! I love vimto!! That dress is gorgeous!

  3. LOL! At first I thought you did a haul of the cherry vinto. =P But cute baskets. I've never heard of those drinks before. Must not be available in the states.

  4. I love receiving presents in the mail :)
    Your Vimto prize is amazing!! The dress is gorgeous too.
    The Sigma F80 brush is one of my favourite brushes to apply foundation :D

    I recently won a Sleek competition and everything today :D <3 xxx

  5. Congrats on winning the F80, I absolutely love it!

  6. Amazin parcels, those vimtos will last ages! There's so much of it! Must remember to get some when I'm next out shopping - not tried the cherry one, sounds yum! x

  7. Wow, congrats on your wins! I love getting things through the post, especially handwritten letter or presents! The dress is gorgeous too :)

  8. @Rachel - Me too! :D It always feels like Christmas xx

    @Aseya - Neither did I! I love the original Vimto, but wasn't expecting to like the cherry version... But I do! :) xx

    @D.Sadie - Haha! That would have been so funny! Oh, that's strange they don't sell it in the US! I wonder why... xx

    @Vicky - Me too! I was so surprised when I opened the package. I love it for foundation too! It's amazing! Oh wow, that's so exciting!! I'm jealous, hehe xx

    @G A B Y - Thanks, I love it too! xx

    @Sarah - Haha, I know right! Although I've managed to get through the smaller bottles already, just the squash/cordial ones left! I was pleasantly surprised by the cherry one, since I don't normally like cherry flavoured things. xx

    @a.j.b - Thanks :) Me too, it always feels like Christmas and I love that someone's taken the time to post something. xx

  9. WOW, that's a lot of Vimto! Congrats

  10. @Ling - Haha, it is, but I've actually managed to work my way through a lot of it already! Hehe. Thanks xx
